Southampton v Tottenham – Match Preview

Nigel Adkins, Southampton

Southampton welcome Tottenham to St Mary’s on Sunday looking to move out of the bottom three, while Andre Villas-Boas will be hoping for three more points to propel his side into the top four.

Southampton’s problems have been in defence this season, after they conceded another four at Upton Park during their last Premier League outing.

It’s a problem Nigel Adkins will have to address if his side are to get anything out of this fixture, with Tottenham looking very good going forward of late.

They lost a cracker 4-2 at home to Chelsea last time out, and will be looking to bounce back.

Gareth Bale is set to return to face his former club, after missing the Chelsea defeat to be with his partner as she went into labour.

Southampton will once again be without record signing Gaston Ramirez. Nigel Adkins explained how he expects the Uruguayan to be absent for another month at least.

Prediction: Southampton 0-3 Tottenham
